Oscar is the sweetest little puppy. He’s so loving and yet, he’s feisty and spunky. When he gets tired, he wants to be held and he wants to be close. I cannot cross stitch with him on my lap, mainly because I don’t want the bright light in his eyes and he won’t keep his head covered, even if he’s sleeping.
He likes to sit right at the edge of my chair. I sit in a recliner and if he is under it or right at the edge of it, I can’t put it down so I’ve pulled dining room chair up close to my chair and I prop my feet up in it. But, the recliner is a rocker so when I’m sitting back in it, the front is a bit off the floor and he will get partially under the chair so I have to use my feet to scoot him out a bit.
Last night I put his bed by my chair and was hoping he would learn to sit in that instead of right at the edge of my chair.
The first few days, he had nothing to do with the bed. Then he was getting partially in it.
Last night, he finally got all the way in the bed.
He’s also going in and out of his crate where the first day or so, he wouldn’t get near it. I think by the time he’s been here a week (Saturday), he’ll be well on his way to learning, or at least partially learning, what we expect and what we want from him.
After I begged for years for a dachshund puppy, last night Vince said “I wish we would have gotten him sooner!” But then he said . . “But if we had gotten a puppy sooner, it wouldn’t have been him so I’m glad we waited.” Vince loves him as much as I do!
